Deer Isle - Stonington House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Peaceful, quite getaway, ideal for couples and small families. Beautiful home on an equally beautiful salt water cove in Town of Stonington, on Deer Isle, in the well-known sailing paradise of Penobscot Bay. Surrounded by 7 acres of evergreen forest, in a small, quiet area 5 miles from downtown Stonington. House was designed by noted Blue Hill architect Robert Knight and is abundantly sunny and airy, with over 50 windows or skylights.

Internet access thru MIFI and Dish TV. Top of the line fixtures in kitchen and baths. Shower in Master bath is exceptional with beautiful views of the forest. Pets allowed only with owner's permission. Deer Isle is what Julia Child referred to as 'true Downeast Maine' when she often vacationed near our home. With lobster and seafood galore!

Sea Kayaking can be done right from the property's edge (2 boats available). Island has small golf course, tennis, many hiking trails, freshwater pond, and gorgeous sunsets. Haystack Mountain School of Arts and Crafts is a renowned workshop facility on the island. 90 minutes from Acadia National Park. It's a short ferry boat trip from Stonington to Isle au Haut, part of Acadia National Park.

Deer Isle is also well know for its artist community, with many wonderful galleries and antique shops.

Waterside Home in the Woods

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have been to Maine at least 12 times over the years, and we were lucky enough to stay at this house, along with another couple, on our most recent visit. What a perfect setting! It's tucked into the pine-scented woods, yet footsteps from the rocky coast. The house itself is bright, clean, uncluttered and well equipped. Soft sheets and fluffy towels, as well as all kitchen necessities, are supplied.

Highlights of our visit include sitting on the deck, sipping coffee at sunrise and wine at sunset; watching bald eagles and ospreys circle above throughout the day; spotting a seal swimming in the cove at high tide, coming up for air and then going back down again; sitting on a rock at the water's edge at low tide, reading a book and blissing out; buying soft-shell lobsters in Stonington and steamers up the road, cooking them up and feasting at the dining room table, with a backdrop of woods and water out the windows.

We were lucky enough to be visiting on a couple of clear, moonless nights. The view of the star-filled sky through the skylight right above our bed (in the upstairs room) was amazing; one night we saw three meteors before we finally fell asleep. Also, the upstairs bathroom has some beautiful, very happy houseplants, and the shower is wonderful--roomy, with big windows (don't worry, no one can see inside).

Be sure to drive slowly on the unpaved road leading to the house. On our second day, a neighbor called because she feared we were exceeding the 10 mph speed limit. Also, the wi-fi is so slow that we called in "no-fi" and cell reception is only slightly better. But that's okay, as long as you realize you're here to relax and unplug, not to work remotely. There's satellite TV, but it had few offerings and was difficult to figure out (maybe that's just us?). No premium channels, difficult to even find any national news. But there are plenty of excellent books on the shelves, board games to play, naps to take...

The only thing that spoiled our tranquility, I'm sorry to say, were the neighborhood dogs. They barked pretty consistently and their voices echoed from around 5:30 a.m. to late at night. We tried to tune them out, but...

I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a wicked good time in Maine!

A great spot for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5
The location is ideal for a quiet, relaxing getaway on a beautiful and not-too-developed island. Almost any outdoor activity is available. Kayaking from the tidal cove is excellent, although you must be cognizant of the tide cycle unless you want to explore clam flats on your return. There are both close-by and distant paddling destinations, and Bald Eagles,Osprey and seals are frequently seen. It's also a good spot for bicycling, although the unpaved access road is not ideal for narrow-tire bikes, once the paved road is reached, the island offers many good cycling loops, as long as you avoid the most heavily used main road. Hiking trails on the island are available, but the most impressive hiking or mountain biking is on Isle au Haut, a 45 minute boat trip away. The description of other activities is accurate and this a great place for families, especially those with older kids. The cottage itself is very comfortable, beautifully designed and its a real pleasure just to relax there. The kitchen is efficient, well equipped and it's convenient to have a dishwasher and a clothes washer/dryer. There are a handful of restaurants on the island, but our favorites are on the mainland, a bit of a drive, but the wonderfully quirky El El Frijoles in Sargentville (not far from the suspension bridge) is fairly close and worth checking out. There is a good grocery store in Stonington, and wonderful farmer's markets on Weds and Friday mornings. The property is beautifully maintained, and the owners are helpful and responsive. This is about as good as the Maine coast gets.

Exactly As Advertised

  • 5 of 5
The owner's description and prior guests comments are very accurate. We wanted peace and quiet in a class act vacation home -- and that's exactly what we got. I recommend Whale's Rib restaurant as well as the internet connections at the delightful little golf course or the Stonington library (when was the last time you the Hardy Boys series in mint condition?) when you're not eating dirt cheap pirced lobsters from the local co-ops or super friendly Donna at her upholstery shop just up the main road (her hubby is a fisherman). The clammers who worked the cove in front of the house one morning were very friendly. Did I mention that the local pharmacist called every drug store between Stonington and Bar Harbor to find my persription in stock? Sandy Beach is gorgeous; renting a bicycle to circle around Isle au Haut on a beautiful day (decide that morning) is a great idea (I'm 63 -- bring your point and shoot camera in your day pack). In short, we had a memorable, restful time. .

Trip to Maine & Trecker4's Houise

Trip to Maine & Trecker4's Houise
  • 5 of 5
After you leave the main highway, you realize you are in a special place. The people and feeling of real Maine are here. Once you arrive at the house, it is in a quiet area of the island surrounded by thick and ancient forest. there are deer, plenty of clams in the mud flats, and water access for kayaking and swimming. The house was a perfect place for relaxation and enjoying family or friends. It is airy and comfortable, simple and clean, with lots of light provided by an abundance of windows and skylights. I particularly enjoyed sitting on the porch and eating lobster dinners. One morning, I found more than a dozen cobwebs outside near the house, all coated with dew, creating thousands of jewels hung on the silk web. We enjoyed visiting Haystack Moutain School of Crafts and the many galleries on the island. The restaurants were great with lots of fresh fish; the settings were perfect and the people could not have been more friendly. All in all, a wonderful vacation for us!

A Wonderful Down East Experience

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the Trecker's house on Deer Isle on two different occasions and both times left feeling deeply refreshed. The house is situated to give great views of the water, whether you are on the deck, inside the screen porch, eating at the dining table or reading in the living room.

If you like to cook, the kitchen is inviting, well-equipped, well laid out and even has a dishwasher! Two couples can share the house and each have a degree of privacy with their own bath. A lottery might be needed to decide who gets to have the AMAZING upstairs shower!

If you get a cool, foggy day you can build a fire in the small woodstove and curl up with a good book. The house has an aesthetically pleasing character that combines a modern feeling inside, including up-to-date appliances, with a simple rustic exterior.

We have taken many great walks and runs in the surrounding woods and on the dirt road where the house is located. It is in a gorgeous spot. We have also enjoyed exploring the surrounding area and always stop before we leave the island at "Nervous Nellie's Jams and Jellies" to buy yummy gifts and learn about the latest unusual bird sightings.

It is obvious the Treckers have put a lot of loving care and artistic touches into this beautiful house. It feels like we have been welcomed into their home. We can't imagine a nicer place to stay and hope to be back many times! It was magical!!

Quiet side of Maine

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect place to enjoy Maine without all the tourists. Quick drive into Stonington, a quaint fishing village with no pretense and lots to do (shopping, eating, artisans, and lobster fresh from the boats). Night life does not exist as all but a few restaurants stay open after 5:00. There is plenty of hiking nearby on relatively short but beautiful trails. The Trecker's home has a great layout, especially for two couples, and is in a beautiful location, very clean and with plenty of amenities. Sit on the porch with a cup of coffee, relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the bay and the wind blowing through the pines. It doesn't get better than this!
